be a good idea for us to hear about the operations that the chilean navy had undertaken for helping out their citizens. we have a panel here today, we actually have two panels we're going to roll through. one is stories from the field, if you will, people's experiences in working in international environments to help promote humanitarian missions. fleet week got involved with a humanitarian mission back in october in the earthquake in van, turkey. there's a heavy kurdish in san francisco and the ... better recover from their event and how to better prepare in the future from the katz traufk event that had taken place would not occur. we got a phone call at the fleet week association to ask if we could help bring together some resources and leet a fact-finding mission and we did that. one of our panelists is up here, second from your left, rob dudgeon, he's with the department of emergency management and he's the director of emergency services. rob's organization has been instrumental in creating the program that we have from back in 2010 all the way through to today and i know in th
7-month deployment. captain mike napolitano is serving with the navy's expedition training group. while deployed in 2004, he spearheaded maritime patrol relief efforts toing the 2004 indian ocean tsunami, as well as numerous theater cooperation efforts throughout the pacific and in 2009 captain napolitano reported as commanding officer of the expeditionary training group. this is a fabulous panel and i know you're going to appreciate what they have to say. rear admiral, i think you'll start. >> first of all on behalf of the chilean navy i would like to thank so much to san francisco fleet week, particularly to admiral gary roughhead for being invited to participate in this senior seminar. it's a privilege for me to be here and to share with you the experience that we had just during and after the earthquake that we had in chile in february 27, 2010. most of the lessons learned that i'm going to show here to you is part of your concern and i'm very glad you are taking that in account so i think you are absolutely in the right path. anyway, it's a massive event that you always
and gentlemen, the fire boat phoenix. long may she serve san francisco. next is line is the u.s. navy guided missile destroyer, the u.s.s. rebel. equipped with the aegis combat system. it was commissioned in 2002 and deployed last year from san diego as part of the ronald reagan strike group. it was one of first ships to provide humanitarian assistance following the earthquake and tsunami in japan. the first responder, the rebel embarked navy helicopters surveyed the coast line to provide an aerial perspective for the damage to other ships for relief efforts. after hearing first hand from survivors, the crew volunteered to provide assistance. during deployment also conducted counter piracy patrol to enforce exclusive zones in the region. should ship's names sake, edward rebel served in the revolutionary war and searched in a bold complain against pirates and helped shape the fighting spirit that has been characteristic of the u.s. navy. the u.s.s. rebel is the sixth ship to bare the next time. there's 9217 tons and can sail in excess of 30 knots. there's 30 officers and 270 enlisted personne
on behalf of the chilean navy i would like to thank so much to san francisco fleet week, particularly to admiral gary roughhead for being invited to participate in this senior seminar. it's a privilege for me to be here and to share with you the experience that we had just during and after the earthquake that we had in chile in february 27, 2010. most of the lessons learned that i'm going to show here to you is part of your concern and i'm very glad you are taking that in account so i think you are absolutely in the right path. anyway, it's a massive event that you always have to work a lot in order to be prepared. i'm going to show you a short presentation where i'm going to thank that point starting from the general effect of the massive earthquake and then going down to the particular events that we've taken in care as a navy. as you see here, chile is located in the southwest coast of south america and we had an earthquake on february 27, 2010, with an intensity of 8.8 richter scale located approximately in the center of the country. the subduction zone, the area where the plate
association in conjunction with commander, u.s. navy third athlete, gerald beman and the united states marine corps major general spie s. the association is comprised of 12 board of directors, all of whom are volunteers. the chairman, major general michael myatt. united states marine corps retired. jod jodie breakenridge, retired. senator finestein and george schulz. the san francisco fleet week board of directors are planning fleet week year round and many city and counties are beginning their own programs to do what san francisco has done with their unprecedented efforts toward humanitarian assistance and training. today we have a world-class lineup for the entire bay area. we have a spectacular venue at the marina green showcasing the marina green. the physical symbol of commitment of federal, state and local agencies to the emergency preparedness of the bay area in a time of crisis. in that wasn't enough, after the parade of ships this morning, the navy's premiere flight demonstration, the blue angels will perform their most daring maneuvering over, under and around the golden gate bridge
, i think, well, because we have the best damn navy in the world. this was not an extravagant or hyper bolic statement t. was simply a statement of fact. it was a fact that not only i knew. it was a fact which other nations understood. even one carrier battle group had more military fire power than any other nation's entire navy, and we had two of them on the way to taiwan. so, i was confident that no one was going to challenge the fleet that we were sending there. this -- and in fact, they did not challenge it even before our two carrier battle ships arrived in taiwan, the crisis was over and the maneuvers had been subsided. this positive result was possible because of the military capability of our navy and because both carrier battle groups were battle ready and able to steam towards their destination in less than 24 hours. so, why were we able to respond so effectively? certainly one important reason, because the technology in our ships was the best in the world. the results are true, that the training and the spirit of our sailors was superb. and we had absolutely first-class lea
and part of the project, asked the navy rather to expend all of its funds in the most productive way they can. and at the end put it in a form can easily be returned to us and we go out to bid. these other options here top wise 80 aepre, nav sea, the navy would start to fund them before they're out of the $3 million. we would be forced to go to a sole source contracting vehicle for those. so, i didn't mean to get too much into the wave there. it gets complicated in phase ii and 3. that is the the subject of the resolution that is before you. so, the purpose of the m-o-u is my favorite shout out, by the way, just a side-view. the m-o-u nav sea and titan salvage dry dock number one to begin phase 1 of the work. it gives them something to point to, lest the coast guard a excuse them of stealing it when they toe it to pier 50 of the shipyard. that is also the vehicle that is going to contain the release of liability which is important piece of this. the navy will not proceed without it because salvage operations are inherently risky and if, you know, salvages sometimes sink during tow an
was asked that night, but at the time the navy didn't have this information. how many notice of violations have been issued to date for the navy or their contractors by our regulatory agencies? >> our understanding and our records and review of the records that we have is that the states lead regulatory department of agency, toxic and substance control hasn't issued violations to the navy or their contractors. shaw environmental, who is the navy's contractor on this work, did receive a notice of violation from the california department of public health, the agency that had been conducting these scans that we talked about, on june 23rd, 2011. these violations -- a notice of violation is a statement that says, you need to correct these problems. and all of those violations, those problems were corrected by shaw to the satisfaction of the california department of public health. >> okay. so, during this time we only have one reported notice of violation, that was to shaw, in june 2011 and they have since abated -- addressed and abated that [speaker not understood]? >> that is the information w
] coming through, we're now able to do ships for the navy seal of command that we couldn't do at all. the u.s. government is now actually scheduling ships to the san francisco yard based on the availability of the dry dock. we've had discussions yesterday about when is the richard burt coming in. richard burth is another very large project like the matthew perry, like the alan shepherd. there's only two dry dockses in the pacific basin that can pick them up, one is in guantanamo, one -- guam and one is in san francisco. i have to say thank you to the port of san francisco for the hard work and dedication of the teams there and the vision that they have for the shipyard and for the industry. i mean, monique's cruise, monique's teams are without equal. honest to goodness, it has really been a meerctionv you are to work with them and i look forward to the things we're moving forward on. the yard, san francisco, we're going to have one of the busiest years the yard has ever had, period, end of story. we're growing in a very tough market and we're growing in a tough market in no small part due
and in the navy's presentation, it talks about area 1231 and 12 33. well, that's my block, northpoint. there are two sets of buildings that are empty that have been empty, and we walk our dogs there. there is the wind surfing is there, and that's not fenced in. so, how safe is it if, you know, people can just kind of wander there and it's just open? so, that worries me about that one spot. and thank you for having the hearing today. i appreciate it. >> thank you. if i could just clarify the first issue -- concern you brought up. your concern is not necessarily the contractor friday night. you're concerned if they leave the gates open, people coming in -- >>> how safe is that? >> um-hm, okay. hopefully we can figure out -- i'm not sure if that's sfpd or someone else, but hopefully we can find a way to address that question. thank you, ms. hogue. >>> good evening, my name is amber montayo. thanks for having this hearing tonight. i've been a resident for 13 years. i first lived on treasure island on northpoint drive for five years and i've been on ybi for the past more than eight years.
. >> item 10 b, request authorization to enter into an agreement with the united states navy for the navy to provide services to the port to prepare dry dock no. 1 for demolition and disposal. >> i'm here before you to ask your approval of the resolution, which would authorize executive director moyer to enter into a memorandum of understanding between united states navy and the port to allow the navy to execute the first phase of the dry dock disposal project. so, first, very brief bit of history on the dry dock. it was constructed in 1942 for the world war ii shipbuilding and ship prepare effort. it was in use for over 50 years, finally due to excessive wear and tear declared unfit for service in 1999. as a bit of visual history, the photo in the background was taken shortly after in 2003 when the dry dock broke loose of its moorings and landed on treasure island. the picture you see there is dry dock number 1 inside of dry dock number 2, being lifted out of the water to be serviced. >> can you talk [speaker not understood], this is how far. >> where is it located now? >> yes. >> it has
for the navy. i lacked at his bay oh in the program, educated in georgia and he's had a great career in the navy commanding several hospitals, winning several awards and his most recent command was as the commander of walter reed, and i was so glad that he was here to hear the panel that we had with our medical peer to peer exercise. and he's going to talk to us now about navy medicine. with that, please help me welcome vice admiral matthew nathan. (applause). >> thank you, general, very much. well, it's a pleasure here and i'm honored to be able to speak in front of such a distinguished audience. secretary schultz, mrs. schultz, pleasure it see you and you lend tremendous gaffe tas to this program. general spees, distinguished flag officers, general officers and mostly everybody here who is in the readiness business, i am honored to be speaking to a group of people and that would include i think everybody in this hanger deck who is part of that cadre of individuals who when bad things happen and everybody runs out, your job is to run in. it doesn't get better than this coming out
of command are critical in anything that we do. what better way to showcase what our united states navy and our marine corps, our sea-going services, bring to the table in an emergency response, but recognize that they also have another mission to do, macon island just came off a 7-month deployment, this is an era when we're pivoting to the pacific. the ring of fire is also in the pacific. over 35,000 on average fatalities a year over 35 billion dollars worth of damage and we see that year in and year out with tsunamis of catastrophic proportions. today the coast guard is dealing with the debris from that tsunami as it comes ashore here in the state waters as well. just it close on admire beeman's remarks, i think it's critical not just the work here at seminar but over a cup of coffee exchanging business cards because at the end of the day it's the partnerships that mufrt endure at time of crisis. thank you to the macon island for this show of force during this third fleet week. >> i'd like to bring up the mayor of the great city and county of san francisco. what a difference he's ma
not understood]. niche a was mentioned this morning. that was a fantastic piece of work by the navy. it turned around the attitudes of niche a toward the united states. it was a the kind of building block we look for in an economic and security commons. just as when we in san francisco see not only what the military can bring to the party and help us with, not only how we can interact with the military, but also we say to ourselves, it's also up to us to do everything we can for ourselves. we're not kind of an outfit, it's easier for them to collaborate with us. so, all of these things are important to us as we have these exercises. so, i say this is a very worthwhile enterprise that will keep going. i tip my hat to my friend mike who really has been leading us in these efforts. and now i say as also the slogan, i guess you call it this morning, maybe it's what the navy says. i think it's a very good phrase. a global force for good. that's what we've been practicing, a global force for good. thank you. (applause) >> thank you, sir. thank you. thank you very much, sir. (applause) >> and for all
a very defined triage process that we've used in our, on our navy and marine corps side we're quite used to. it would be important to try, that's maybe another training thing we want to work on, that we collaborate and understand we're using the same system because we don't want to create two systems of triage within the city. that's a good way to create more chaos than there might ordinarily be. >> i'd like to follow-up on one of the things that was mentioned about the walking wounded. one of the things that came up after yesterday's after action group was this concept of different patient groups. in the military you have a fairly healthy soldier that you are going to be providing aid to. in san francisco we have young, we have old that have much more complex issues that you may need to deal with. given your capabilities, how would you address that? >> it's a significant concern although it may be a little bit artificial in that we do, our doctors and surgeons and nurses do take care of a wide number of population groups outside of active duty military either at their mtf's or in o
because they were identified as potential sites by the navy? >> there's two categories. there was potential sites. on the map it's the orange hatched areas. and in addition there were five areas of high traffic areas and high-use areas where we asked them to additionally assess to just verify. >> okay, thank you. and then about the 1231-12 33, this was brought up. the question was is it okay for the neighbors to walk their dogs because the area is not [speaker not understood] off. >> my understanding is if it is okay, i am not familiar with those exact house numbers. >> could you please follow-up? >> yes, i can follow-up on that one. >> great. one of the other questions -- a couple of members had brought up the issue of the pipes. and how can we ensure that the pipes are free from contamination since they are below ground? >> so, i think people understand the water comes from hetch hetchy. but are we worried about contamination from the pipes that are below ground, probably below the 12 feet that's being assessed and surveyed. and what can we do if we do find green and
and the navy liaison and if need be the guard liaison would have access to that tool. the next generation command system is a fantastic web-based command and control technology that we expect to use in the future. with that, thank you. >> thanks. colonel yeager. >> i just want to say you can't underestimate the risk presented by these environments we fly in and really the relationships that we build with cal fire and the training prepares us to mitigate that risk. as rear admiral riveras said, bad things tend it happen at night. they also happen on the weekend and i think we have a 3-day week jepld here but i assure you we are ready to respond. >> from personal experience in 2007, i started training for fire fighting in 2006 but in 2007 was my first actual experience fighting fires and as i went in for my first dip in san diego to fill the bucket about two miles away was my brothers and my brother's house, his wife and my two nephews and that's when this capability really hit home for me, that it's an important thing. as was said before, every member -- we're all members of the commu
transfer to navy control under executive order, 8929 of one november, 1949. at this time, please stand and salute the retired united states coast guard cutter morris. thank you. please be seated. morris was assigned rescue out of san diego, california. she returned 1 january, 1946 in executive order dated 1945. she then assumed patrol duties out of san pedro. she was then placed in storage in kennen dale, washington from 1947 to 1969 until 1979 and transferred back to san pedro which remained her home part. she was redesignated as cutter 147. medium capacity. she was decommissioned and then transferred to the boy scouts of america. she's now active with the sea scout program and the coast guard cutter morris was named for robert morris, born in liverpool, england. he emigrated to maryland at 17. his key role in the financial affairs of the new nation lended him his position of superintendent of finance. his extraordinary skill in offices greatly contributed to the success of american revolution. a delegate to the constitutional, he served in the u.s. senate until 1975 and declined to s

plan. >> if you talk to my marine brethren, they may kit indicate that the navy would leave you. [laughter] >> some of you got that. it has to do with a little i sland that -- * [laughter] >> anyway, i can assure you that the u.s. navy is not going to leave. and some of the things that i used to back that up, general ka joe bastardi i, commander in the northern command, who really has overall responsibility for a military effort with regards to domestic support to civil authorities will be here tomorrow. i think it's the first time that we've had the commander in the northern command and the three such sos that we've had, he is going to adopt a model that we employed with the immediate response assistance that i indicated to you earlier that we used earlier this year. he's going to adopt that as the model for northern command with the army and the air force to use. i think the momentum that we have gained here over the last three years, we leveraged off of that. we started a similar senior leadership seminar up in seattle, that we had the first one this year. they have some peop

in the world, often times the ambassador will pick up the phone and dial 911 and the navy marine corps team answers the phone. it is our those, it is our dna it is our ability to be there. if you look at the communicate dapbt's 3 central tenets of what he believes it importance, readiness is in there. the ability to move and go now. where do you want us, when do you want us, like fedex, we are absolutely guaranteed to be there overnight. it's what we do. it's what we are trained for. and the more we understand and can operate with civic forces, the more we understand what already exists in our life line, the more we can break down political barriers and culture barriers that exist within our own country, the more we can partner and stabilize and support civic operations, because as someone said earlier in the panel, if we need to come in, things are pretty bad. but here's the good news. we bring a tremendous arsenal of capability and talent and technology and command and control and mostly we bring a how can i help you, how can i work to support your mission, how can i make a differe

, they are the eyes and understand the local situation. i think going through this that the navy and the marine corps, we're used to being in charge whenever we show up and we're not going to be in this situation. i think it's important for us to understand that and we do and i think we, if we were employed in this certainly would understand that particular chain of command and would be able to fit right in and execute as required by the local situation. >> let me reiterate that the local authorities need to know that the emergency managers, the first responders, are there to be in charge to run things in their local disaster. everyone else that rolls in behind are there to enable them to do that, to manage to get back to normal so all the forces that roll in can finally leave. the emergency managers need to remain in control, they need to be situationally aware, they need to be in communicate with their forces, they need to understand what assets can become available as they need them. again, they are primed, they have to be active and in place and everyone, everything everyone can provide to them
tribes of that part of the world. and how do i flow resources there, recognizing the navy doesn't have ice breakers and our nation has one. so, we do a lot of work with canada when we're starting to work on those contingencies. but we look at the national response framework. it was rewritten post katrina. and another key part of partnerships, when i was the federal on scene coordinator during deep water horizon, it's not in the national response framework, but every parish president, every mayor, every governor had a coast guard liaison officer at the oak pride and above level. so, if they didn't like how the response was going, go to my liaison officer. don't go to anderson cooper and then cause the white house to react to what they're seeing on cnn. so, how do you get in front of that news cycle? and the only way you can do that as tip o'neill said, all things in politics are local and i think we heard from vice admiral nathan that i think all responses are local as well. and, so, we really need to start most importantly at the local level, at those planning levels, because the first
